Artist Kendra Haste Creates a Menagerie of Animal Sculptures from Galvanized Wire

Artist Kendra Haste was recently commissioned by Historic Royal Palaces to create thirteen sculptures as installation pieces for an exhibition celebrating the Royal Menagerie at the Tower of London. Made using her trademark galvanized wire mesh, the project, which includes life-size lions, leopards, baboons, and a polar bear relates to the history of exotic animals that were once a popular tourist attraction at the Tower. Haste says, "I hope to convey through the sculpture the presence and power of these animals held in the unnatural confines of the tower.” The sculptures which were installed back in 2011 will be on view at the Tower of London for the next ten years.
